Chill out with the kids

We've been there with family and friends for the deepavali week end kids' activities. The playground and kids activites were great, the kids absolutely loved it. There was 3 entertainers taking care of the kids. That was great. The place is nice, black and white villa, very pleasant, fresh air passing through the terrace. The food and service could probably be better. The kids' meal was a joke, tiny and average. Our meals were unequal, the bangers & mashes was so-so, the lamb shank was very good. The desserts were decent without being dazzling. The service was also unequal, we've had a lady who wasn't really "on the ball" and a young gentleman who happen to be and was getting us whatever we needed immediately.

What a pity

Nice surrounding and great that they have the playhouse, but value and service are a catastrophe. Very expensive. The paella for "2-3 persons" is barely enough for 1. Very unfriendly staff. Never again!

Is it a joke ?

We wanted to try Graze but, unfortunately, they only provide dinner on Saturday. On our way back, we realized something was open on the opposite side. Let's go !

It's a nice place : a black and white house with a kid playground inside (good idea) and a nice terrace.

The first table given to us had no fan (weather was on "burning mode") and actually already occupied by two legions of ants. So we moved just aside.

We ordered an American breakfast, a Caesar salad, a juice and a tea.

The "American" would have been better made by myself (no i do not cook). Hash browns was an oil sponge. The rest was just average. Presentation was pitiful.

No bread, no syrup, no salt and pepper. We had to ask for everything. After asking twice for ice water, i gave up.

So you have less quality and quantity than a Spruce "big brekkie" and it's more expensive (19.90 against 16)

I needed to stand up three times in order to get everything. At least they were polite (that's the 1st point in Service rating).

Caesar salad was as good as in a food court. They have written "freshly-baked bread" but it means "some small croutons". Anyway they brought us some hot not-freshly-baked bread for free (2d service point).

At this moment i decided to write a review but i did not imagine there was a final !

The final : after sending a guy to wash the floor in order to remove the ants (there was plenty of free well-placed tables), a woman -probably the owner- used the anti-ant product on the floor while 2 tables (including us) were still having lunch. Once the smell got into our noses, we crossed our eyes and began to laugh. Much better than becoming angry.

The place is so nice that they could really do something great with it. But without any big change, no way we come back or recommend this place.

So please, if you want to have a brunch, try Spruce for instance.

nice location, poor delivery

I went there with a friend Saturday night. The place has a nice location and the large veranda with the fountain makes for a nice, peaceful venue for a dinner.

We ordered freshly squeezed juices, my friend ordered sea bass, I ordered the tuna. The staff told me the tuna is not available - fair enough. Then I ordered the salmon and scalop instead, the waitress mumbled the salmon was not fresh enough to be served. I then asked what else was not available either - turned out no beef and duck either. Surprising, with a relatively slim menu so many dishes not available. Does not paint a pretty picture.

I showed my discontent and could see the staff snickering about me afterwards. Be real - this is not good performance and most patrons would not be happy about this. Don't mock your guests - the restaurant is obviously not well visited enough for you to afford a snotty attitude.

My friend then also had to return her "fresh" orange juice as an old orange was used and the juice tasted anything but fresh. Her rice was soggy as well. To be fair, my pumpkin soup tasted fair (though not supreme) and the calamari starter was really tasty.

Will definitely not return. While the venue is nice, the staff has a bad attitude and fail to deliver what's on the menu. Not worth it.

Ease on the salt please!

I had the sea bass and there was so much salt on it (there's was even not melted salt pieces, yuck!). The server was so slow and he only had one table (us) or the night!
